And the good news is that it survived with only a couple of small scars.
I had just finished doing the update to it. I've been reading mostly on the ivory and my 5 year old has been playing battleship and checkers on the black one.
I have my laptop set up on a cabinet near the fireplace. I unplugged the USB cable and fumbled putting it down. it slid off the cabinet and i made a grab for it which missed and it went tumbling down. Hit the side of the cabinet , bounced on the edge of the brick and hit the floor.
Well after a moment of silence I picked it up and it was still on. tried the buttons, went through the menus opened a book etc etc. Everything works fine but its got scars to show for it. hope the pic is clear enough.
I'm quite pleased with the durability- don't try this at home folks
